Governance Solutions Overview for Industry Standards
Standards that define specific messages, data structures, and schemas allow development teams to adhere to prescribed best practices and industry requirements. Examples such as HL7, PCI, IFX, IFW, and ACORD influence or manage information security, health records, financial information and transactions, organizational information, and much more. Automated governance allows for the enforcement of these standards both on a large-scale and at granular levels.
In nearly every industry, the proper exchange of information, integration of technology components, and analysis of technology structures is business critical. These business needs, however, are often further complicated by practices that may be unique to particular departments, application types that can be self- or partner-managed, software that can be proprietary or off-the-shelf, etc.
Managing this complex integration, and doing it cost-effectively, is possible with automated governance. Whether implementing a database, defining baseline specifications for software builds, or optimizing workflows, automated governance ensures compliance and interoperability that is otherwise elusive to implement and support.
